Get involved, give back…make a difference.
In 2019, our 570+ amazing volunteers provided over 15,000 hours of service, expanding our reach and capacity in the community while also providing constant support and innovation. All of these services and many more are provided at no cost to cancer survivors and their families. At Cancer Services, we are able to help people who have cancer and educate the community on wellness and cancer risk-reduction because of dedicated donors, supporters, and volunteers.
Volunteers are vital to the success of the agency. We would love to have you as a volunteer too!
Due to COVID restrictions, we have limited in office personnel to staff only and are not currently utilizing volunteers in our office. However, there is still vital a need for volunteers! Some of the opportunities are listed below.
Care Team Members — We are in need of volunteers who will assist our Patient Advocates and Wellness team by making follow-up calls or writing encouraging notes to clients.
Data Entry — We are in need of volunteers who can do data entry remotely from their home.
Office Assistance — We are in need of volunteers who can do various activities from their home such as putting client folders or booklets together or folding flyers, for example. Would involve picking up materials from the office and returning when activity is complete.
Laundry — We are in need of volunteers to launder the donations of hats, scarves, mastectomy bras, sheets, etc. that we receive. Depending on the volume of donations it would be 1 basket every week or two weeks.
Landscaping — We can always use volunteers to keep our office’s landscaping under control either on a regular basis or as a one time offering. Includes mowing, trimming bushes, mulching, planting flowers and holding the weeds at bay.
Fundraising — We always welcome volunteers in the community willing to have fundraisers to support Cancer Services. In 2021, we are unable to hold our normal Wrapped Up In Ribbons raffle. However, for those who would have wanted to sell raffle tickets, we are setting up campaign pages for them to use to solicit for donations instead. Contact Willonda Thomas at 336-760-9983 to discuss.
To begin volunteering, contact Sue Kirby or Malek Rais at 336-760-9983 and we’ll talk through ideas to help match your skills with our agency and client needs.
You can complete the online application and we’ll get in touch with you. You can also print the application and mail it to us or bring it by our office to begin volunteering. We look forward to meeting you!
